Broken Marriage

I am asking for prayers to restore my marriage. We have been married for 14 years.

A few weeks ago I came home from work to find my husband moving out. He said he has been unhappy for a long time and just can't do this anymore. He wanted a divorce.

My husband retired 18 months ago and I have a few more years to work before I can enjoy retirement with him. Just 9 months ago we moved my husband's mother in with us and although there were some adjustments, it has been GREAT having her living with us. Unfortunately, she felt she had to move out with him.

I belive that God is working even though I don't see any changes happening. I am asking God to give me strength and courage to accept his decision and know that he has other plans for me.

Please pray for me.

I would communicate your true

I would communicate your true heart to him ( be as positive as you can)

Say, we have had ups and downs in marriage (as most ) however we have been together through it all and maybe we don't know how to support each other; but I feel Gods has a plan for us both " God is a God of Broken Marriages"

Tell him,

Is there anything i can do for you today, (most times they are lost for words) say i can cook dinner or lunch and we can sit and just spend time together talk and maybe we can come up with a solution.

Tell Him,
I prayed for you, i realized that your to are struggling and hurt or ____ ___ and i asked God to show himself in your day today, help you and to help us. God is a God of covenant and his desire is for Marriage. ( and really do it, tell God i put it in your hands restore my marriage and make us know and trust you more through this trial, help me be sensitive to the Holly spirit and see the work that you are doing. )

if it all falls apart and you say things you regret, say God i'm sorry , forgive me, (immediately after or once you think about it and are upset with yourself.

Tell God, i turn to you, i need you to change me and need you to fill my husband and myself with love, hope and a new beginning.

Plug in to a church and if possible go together.

and always in Jesus Name, amen.


Thank you for your words of

Thank you for your words of encouragement. I want to talk to my husband, but he does not want to discuss any type of resolution at all. I see a counselor and it is helping. I have decided to move on with my life without him and started attending church again. It has been over 20 years since I have been to one. I love it and am making new friends.

I am learning to talk to God and telling him my feelings and desires. But most of all, I have told God that I put my marriage in his hands and asked that he bring it to a resolution.

I still love my husband, but that trust I had with him is broken and I don't know if I could take him back after what he did to our relationship. Therefore, I am focusing on me. Healing me. And getting closer to God.

Again, thank you for your reply. I truly appreciate it - more than my words can say right now.

May God bless you.
